I have heard that hair transplants do not last if you are still loosing your hair. I am definitely still loosing my hair. Do I need to wait until it stops before I get a hair transplant?
I have head that hair transplantation can sometimes result in a large red scar. Is this not a concern with the FUE technique?
I have a very pronounced widow’s peak. The hair at my temples is very far back and as a woman it makes me look like I have a man’s receding hairline. Is it possible to fill in the temple area with a hair transplant and how would this be done?
I would like to get laser hair removal but I have heard differing opinions on whether or not the results are permanent. Does laser hair removal permanently remove hair or just temporarily?
I am a 50-year-old woman and have always been embarrassed by having excess facial hair. I have tried all the drugstore products but my hair, especially on the upper lip, just keeps coming back. Can you help?
My husband is almost completely bald on the top of his head and he is only 28 years old. I want him to try a hair transplant but he says they do not work for everyone. Is this true or false? Who do they work for and who do they not work for?
I am looking to have some work done on my hairline. I am very concerned about having a natural-looking result. I can look at pictures of guys who had hair transplants and say this one has a natural hairline or this one does not but how is this achieved? What are the characteristics that make up a natural hairline and how is this achieved through surgery?
Is a hair transplant the same thing as getting hair plugs?
DR. EPSTEIN: Hi! I am Dr. Epstein. I am with my patient, Ed for short, who just had 590 grafts to the eyebrows. He had no eyebrows. There they are. One procedure. We placed approximately 280 in each side. Really nicely filled in. He is a little bit swollen but overall he has some nice fullness there.
In the donor area he keeps his hair really short. You can barely see the incisions; one there and one there. I did it in two separate incisions so as to minimize the appearance of any scar if he does ever decide to shave his head.
How are you?
PATIENT: I’m fine. I am very happy.
DR. EPSTEIN: You were very nervous to begin with.
PATIENT: Yes I was.
DR. EPSTEIN: And now?
PATIENT: Now I am very relieved.
DR. EPSTEIN: He did great. The hairs will fall out and start to re-grow in around three to four months. I figure in around eight months we may want to do a little touch up and give him more density because he is looking for really thick brows but with the 590 grafts placed he should have a really nice result.

Does laser hair removal work on any part of the body? I am sick and tired of shaving my legs and underarms.
Due to an accident, a portion of one of my eyebrows has never seemed to grow back and this looks very funny. I am wondering if the eyebrow transplant would be a suitable remedy for my situation. It seems this procedure is mostly performed on women but do men ever get this procedure as well?
I would like to get a hair transplant and I was under the impression that anesthesia would not be involved in this process. However, I recently uncovered conflicting information and could you please clarify this?
Does Dr. Epstein use the Neograft machine?
I have been smoking for going on 20 years now. I have tried dozens of times to quit with no real success. I desperately want a hair transplant so I think that might be just the motivation to get me to quit. How soon before my transplant do I need to quit smoking and how does smoking affect the hair transplant?
I am 52 and about a IV verging on a V of the Norwood Scale. I am most interested in filling in my crown and was wondering about how many grafts this would take.
I am 47 and would like to get a hair transplant to fill in my crown. I am assuming that I am still loosing my hair there because it is not yet completely bald. I was wondering if there were any risks or concerns about filling in the crown before the hair loss was stopped.
